For the final round of the competition, 10 singer-songwriters were asked to perform their own compositions for a panel of judges. At the event, held Saturday April 7 at the Chrysler Museum's Kaufman Theatre in Norfolk, the field was first whittled down to three finalists: Trey Andrews, Jenn Lawyer and Sacks. Those three performed again and Sacks was chosen as winner.
The following CDBaby.com bio says Nate was chosen as a finalist in the previous two years of the Sea Level contest. It seems the third time was the charm.
